This is a collection of music for folk dancing that has long been out of print. Most of it consists of 78RPM transcriptions. Many of the vinyl recordings are actually transcribed from older 78s. From the soulful Macedonian, happy-happy Croatian, to the furious Russian-Ukranian melodies this music makes wonderful listening, but most importantly it demands to be danced. The 78RPM recordings often have a vigor and life unsurpassed by modern recordings. This is because they could not edit them, and...

This was the song of the 1920's it was a dance, a song, an idea, and also for many in the 1920's a way of life. The song seems to move us to the days of speakeasy's and the wild ride that became the roaring 20's.

Recorded on May 20, 1929 in Chicago. Justice was a contemporary of Frank Hutchison, where he evidently worked in the mines with Hutchison and played music with him. This tune was recorded by Luke Jordan in 1927 as "Cocaine Blues" (not to be confused with "Cocaine Habit Blues" recorded by the Memphis Jug Band). This tune is one of most surreal in old-time country. While there are clear references to the partaking of the white stuff, there is also seemingly unrelated...

"Castle House Rag - One Step", performed by Europe's Society Orchestra, recorded "under the personal supervision of Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Castle" on February 10, 1914. James Reese Europe was an important musical figure in the ragtime era (his band was the first Black band to record commercially). Vernon and Irene Castle were early popularizers of social dancing to syncopated music. From the original 12" 78rpm disk.

Recorded on December 3, 1927 in Dallas, Texas. The title of this tune was a garbled translation of someone trying to decipher Johnson's singing, the title should have been "Motherless Children Have A Hard Time." Indeed, it is reputed that Johnson was blinded as a child by his stepmother in a fit of anger after she was discovered in bed with another man by Johnson's father, who then beat her.

Recorded in June 1930 in Grafton, Wisconsin. These recording sessions included Charley Patton, Willie Brown and Louise Johnson who all drove up to Wisconsin together from Mississippi. This tune made a deep impression on a young Robert Johnson, who was reportedly mentored somewhat by House; Johnson later recorded this tune as "Walkin' Blues." John Lee Hooker likewise did his own version in 1949 called "Burnin' Hell," based on the lines from the third verse: "Yeah, ain't...
